Once, the prairies drowned beneath an inland sea; Tyndall stone is what remained after the waters receded and the glaciers passed. Strength was born out of time, and these pieces of ancient history became the sturdy foundations of Saskatchewan’s future when the Legislative building was constructed of Tyndall stone 100 years ago.
HiddenTyndall is a public art project by Terri Fidelak in honour of the centennial anniversary of the Saskatchewan Legislative building. In 2012, Terri will place 100 cubes of Tyndall stone throughout the province’s landscape in hopes that they will be serendipitously discovered. Those who come across the cubes will find a message upon the stone, inviting them to participate by returning the Tyndall to the Legislative building in Regina. There the pieces will become part of a permanent installation celebrating the cooperative spirit of the people of Saskatchewan.
